    Hi Guys!
    I have a problem it's like 1 month until my exams start and i've been revising but nothings going in.
    I've wrote my notes out like 5 times but i can't remember any of it.
    Any tips or different techniques?

    do you think if you record your notes and listen to them in your sleep it will help?

    what do you mean by 'putting a mirror infront and teach yourself the notes'?

    No problem

    Erm lol naaahhh you can try it but I doubt it would help because you're not consciously taking it in :P

    Basically I used to sit in front of my mirror and pretend i was a teacher and used to teach myself my notes pretending i was giving a lesson...i used to explain everything and everytime i got stuck i would research a bit more...it used to help me concentrate for aggges and also in my exams i used to hear my own voice reading out the notes lol try it!

    Haha yeah you should tell your family what you're doing before you start though otherwise they might think you're going crazy don't panic..just print off the specifications/syllabuses from your exam board's website and use it as a check list to make sure you've covered everything...and make sure your notes cover everything. then all you can do is practise.
    ermm...well depends reli..are you current notes easy to read?

    lol :P you know your notes that you've hand written..are they messy? is ur hand writing easy to read? if it's fine then typing it out would be a waste but if they're messy and hard to read then make nice, colourful notes and print them off and reading them will be easier. Print on yellow paper aswell-it's meant to help you remember better.

    Ermmm....write it all and then highlight when you read because then you'll only highlight the most important words e.g. words that you NEED to know the definition of etc.
